L'Auberge aux Marais is located on D974, on the so-called "Route de la Voie de la Liberté" ("Road of the Way of Freedom") which offers a very nice alternative to the express road N174.
By car : 
Maps, GPS and signs are outdated due to the recent implementation of the new national N174 and a way out which was initially planned and never realized. 
Coming from the N13 from Caen, do not take the direction of Saint Lô - Saint Jean de Daye as perhaps proposed by your GPS, but stay on N13 and exit at Saint Hilaire Petitville - Carentan. At the 1st roundabout after the exit ramp, take the direction Carentan, at the roundabout take the direction of Saint Jean de Daye. Coming from the N13 from Cherbourg, exit at Saint Hilaire Petitville, and at the roundabout take the direction of Saint Jean de Daye. 
You are now on the D974, Route de la Voie de la Liberté. At next roundabout after 6 km, turn again towards Saint Jean de Daye. You find L'Auberge aux Marais on your right after the bridge.
Coming from Saint Lô by N174, exit at Saint Jean de Daye (exit 9) and follow this direction, you arrive on D974. Drive through Saint Jean de Daye and keep on, you find L'Auberge aux Marais after 5 km, at the roundabout.
